Thank you to everyone who entered our competition to win Hilton Honors Gold status on Wednesday.
I particularly want to thank the seven readers who got in touch during the day and also offered to give away their own Hilton Honors Gold gift code.
This meant that we could give away EIGHT prizes of Hilton Honors Gold status.
The eight winners were:
- Mark T
- Nick G
- Cynthia M
- Sam B
- Derrick McK
- Andrew McC
- Nishant P
- David C
Fingers crossed that we get hotels open again soon and our winners can enjoy their free breakfasts!
PS. Apologies for not publishing the winners of our Jones Bootmaker competitions yet, which ran just before Christmas. We had difficulties contacting one of the winners. We gave the person far more leeway than was allowed in the rules to come forward, but we have finally given up and drawn another winner for one of the prizes. We will publish the full list soon.
How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (November 2022)
There are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses.
Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card? It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Premium and MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted into three Hilton Honors points. The Virgin Atlantic cards are the only Visa or Mastercard products in the UK which can indirectly earn Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly with:
- American Express Gold (30,000 bonus Amex points)
- American Express Rewards Credit Card (10,000 bonus Amex points)
and for small business owners:
- American Express Business Gold (20,000 bonus Amex points)
- American Express Business Platinum (40,000 bonus Amex points)
The conversion rate from American Express to Hilton points is 1:2.
